It’s the start of a new year, and like always, you’re determined to make this the year that you finally achieve your business goals.
You sit down and create a plan, outlining exactly what you need to do to reach your targets.
You’re feeling motivated and inspired, and for the first few weeks, everything goes according to plan.
But then something happens; you get busy with other things, or someone offers you a new opportunity that seems too good to refuse.
Suddenly your focus starts to wane, and before you know it, you’ve completely forgotten about your original goal.
If so, don’t worry; you’re not alone! It can be difficult to stay focused when your goal feels far off, and the path to success is littered with distractions.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people say, “This year I am going to grow the business faster then ever .”
They set their sights on a lofty goal, but don’t put in the work needed to achieve it. And then they give up before they even start because they’re not seeing results fast enough.
Achieving a goal isn’t something that is achieved overnight.
It takes dedication, tenacity and consistency to make your dreams come true.
That doesn’t mean you have to do it all at once, but you have to check in on your goals regularly to ensure that they remain top of mind and stay on track.
It’s easy to get lost in the big vision of success. You know, the one where you’re finally living your dreams and doing what you love every day.
But sometimes, we forget about the smaller steps that are needed to get there.
That’s why Insight CA advocates for our clients to have regular accountability check-ins with one of our accountability partners.
When you have someone to keep you accountable, ask the right questions and help you stay motivated, it can make all the difference in helping you reach your goals.
Having a regular accountability check-in with an accountability partner is one of the most effective structures to consistently remain accountable and help you achieve your goals.
When accountability is built into the system, it encourages consistent progress and helps to create positive habits that will last.
Whether it’s a weekly, monthly or quarterly, a check-in is a great way to keep yourself accountable and motivated – allowing you to achieve success faster than ever!
It’s also a great way to celebrate successes along the journey!
So, this year make sure you keep yourself accountable and get the help you need to reach your goals.
